Regional Overview: Straddling the romantic Danube River, with the Buda Hills to the west and the start of the Great Plain to the east, Budapest is the most beautiful city in central Europe. Architecturally, Budapest is a gem, with enough baroque, neoclassical, Eclectic and art nouveau buildings to satisfy anyone's appetite. With parks brimming with attractions, museums filled with treasures, boats sailing up and down the scenic Danube and Turkish-era thermal baths belching steam, the Hungarian capital is a delight both by day and by night. The food and wine are excellent, cheap and in abundance and the nightlife is hot.
